Parody Song Title:

"I Was Fired"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The following is for humor, not bitter reflection.
Seek...the American dream
And refrain...from the evil schemes.
Drive...can get you hired;
Mess up much and you may be fired.

I worked hard, but I messed up and was fired
And the boss regretted I ever had been hired,
And it burns, burns, burns,
That I was fired...that I was fired.

I had...the bills to pay
And went...to work each day.
I worked both my buttocks off;
Oh, but the manager scoffed.

I worked hard, but I messed up and was fired
And the boss regretted I ever had been hired,
And it burns, burns, burns,
That I was fired...that I was fired.

"You can...do anything
If your all...you to it bring."
I...believed it, too,
But I've learned that it isn't true.

I worked hard, but I messed up and was fired
And the boss regretted I ever had been hired,
And it burns, burns, burns,
That I was fired...that I was fired.

I'll echo AFW's and Blaze's question! You beat me to this parody! Great job with it! I have no luck keeping a steady job. I was fired in one of my jobs a few years back as well. So I can relate to that. 5's!

As far as I know, I'm not related to Alvin. I was employed for about three days, but I wasn't sure whether to tell others I worked there for two or three days since the middle day was a day off. --Andy
